EG U23 vs SP U23 Dream11 Prediction: Egypt U23 and Spain U23 will lock their horns on matchday one of the Tokyo Olympics 2020 men’s football tournament on Thursday. Egypt secured qualification for the competition by winning the 2019 CAF U23 Cup of Nations. Spain U23 were held to a 1-1 draw by Japan U23 in the Kirin Challenge Cup last week.
Spain are favourites to win the Gold Medal in Tokyo and for good reason given the quality, strength and depth within their ranks here. Given the fact they have several players in their squad that played at EURO 2020 in Unai Simon, Eric Garcia, Pau Torres, Dani Olmo, Mikel Oyarzabal and the outstanding Pedri, they are rich in quality. Throw in Dani Ceballos, Mikel Merino and Marco Asensio and this is an imposing squad that will be match sharp and ready from the first whistle. That does not bode well for Egypt who simply do not possess anywhere near the same quality. Their only chance will be to thwart the Spanish with their entire team behind the ball, but the Spanish will wear them down. Expect a comfortable win for Spain by a couple of goals or more.
